Mayim Bialik & Cast of BLOSSOM Reunite for Hub Network Marathon
Series star Mayim Bialik shared photos of the reunion on Twitter along with the caption: "#blossomreunion thanks to @HubTVNetwork in effect!"
BLOSSOM ran on NBC from January 3, 1991, to May 22, 1995. The series was created by Don Reo, and starred Mayim Bialik as Blossom Russo, a teenager living with her father and two brothers. The series began with Blossom's mother having left the family to pursue her own life and career; the show concentrated on the family's attempts to adjust.
Blossom's father, Nick, a session musician who was frequently between gigs and tours, was played by Ted Wass. Her oldest brother Anthony (Michael Stoyanov) is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict who eventually became a paramedic. Joey (Joey Lawrence), the other brother, is a fairly stereotypical "dumb jock", known for the drawn-out delivery of his catchphrase, "Whoa!" Her mother, Maddy Russo, was played by Melissa Manchester.
Blossom's best friend Six Lemeure (Jenna von Oÿ) also played a significant part in her life. Six, an especially fast talker, was best known for her tendency to ramble. Blossom also frequently received advice from celebrities in fantasy scenes, such as Mr. T, Hugh Hefner, Phylicia Rashad, David Schwimmer, ALF, and Will Smith.
Blossom became a fashion icon for young girls, following the introduction of the "floppy hat" to television.
